Suprachiasmatic Nucleus: The Mind's Clock

Передняя обложка
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) is the part of the brain that controls circadian rhythms in mammals; these biological rhythms range form daily fluctuations in metabolism to seasonal and annual cycles. This book presents a comprehensive and incisive review of the SCN. It covers anatomy and physiology, intrinsic SCN rhythms, circadian rhythms, neuropharmacology, transplants and development. Based on a conference funded by the National Institute of Health, this timely book is the most up-to-date and definitive reference on the subject.
